transfer of property on a schedule appropriate to their tax or business needs,
while the recipient agency completes its work.
State regulations do not allow the use of government-owned park property as an
in-kind match for park development grants. By holding title to property during the
grant review process, the Foundation makes it possible to utilize the value of the
property and maintain its eligibility for grant assistance.
The Foundation charges $100 per year to cover administrative expenses, and
requires reimbursement for the direct costs of property transfer, insurance,
maintenance, and bookkeeping.
